Kingwest Resources Ltd (ASX:KWR) has kicked off aircore drilling across high priority ‘Kanowna Belle-style' gold targets under Lake Goongarrie in Western Australia, with the first assays expected in two weeks.
Other litho-structural targets under the northern part of Lake Goongarrie will also be tested in the 5,000-metre program, designed to test targets that haven’t been previously drilled.
These targets include a Kanowna Belle-style target A10 as well as other lithostructural targets A1, A2 and A3.
Further drilling planned
Speaking to the upcoming drilling program, chief executive officer Ed Turner said he was excited that aircore drilling had commenced.
“At Goongarrie south Target A9, assays from single metre re-splits have confirmed the composite results from July and given more definition of the mineralisation controls.
“Further drilling can now be planned to better test the mineralised system that extends over at least 1 kilometre.”
Single metre re-split assays
Single metre re-split assays have now been received for all RC drilling completed in March which focused on Target A9 in the south of KWR’s Goongarrie Gold Project (GGP).
The single metre assays correlated well with the composite assays previously released but have more clearly delineated the controls on mineralisation.
Notable results include 5 metres at 8.31 g/t gold from 73 metres and 3 metres at 4.08 g/t from 89 metres in KGR001 as well as 5 metres at 3.60 g/t from 45 metres in KGR007.

Further drilling to continue to test this large mineralised system will now be planned now based on these results.
